    My supercharged V6 2001 Tacoma won't idle, it just dies. I have to continuously rev the gas and keep the RPM's up or it quits! Needless to say I really hate traffic and stopping of any kind. If anyone out there knows what's up, please let me know what to do cuz I'm stumped...

    well several things. check the choke setting if its a throttle cable deal that might be it.

    it could also be a fuel filter deal check that.

    it could also be that your supercharger is not getting enough fuel to kep it ideling. so you might need to get a fuel control device that can re map your air to fuel ratios.

    a 7th injector kit form URD would most likely solve that problem. your probly running way to rich on your fuel mixture and that may be why your truck is stalling out and dieing

    The light is on but its been on since I installed the supercharger...so years. Thanks for the diagram, I'll check it out and estimate the hassle value of removing my throttle body.

    Wow! Get the code read. We could probably solve this issue in a few minutes.

    I checked all the hoses...all good and connected. I did seem to temporarily kinda fix it by messing around with the throttle cable. It's still doesn't sound real healthy but I can drive it...

    You can't. The 5VZ doesn't have one. (Exhaust Gas Recirculatory Valve)
